    It wasn't until college that I learned the phrase wasn't "for all intensive purposes," because that's how my mom worded it.

          Same exact reason: that's how my mom pronounced it! You didn't happen to grow up in the Tri-State (KY-OH-IND) area, did you?

                    • A dangling participle walks into a bar. Enjoying a cocktail and chatting with the bartender, the evening passes pleasantly.

                    • Two quotation marks walk into a “bar.”
                    • A malapropism walks into a bar, looking for all intensive purposes like a wolf in cheap clothing, muttering epitaphs and casting dispersions on his magnificent other, who takes him for granite.

                    • A question mark walks into a bar?
                    • A non sequitur walks into a bar. In a strong wind, even turkeys can fly.
                    • Papyrus and Comic Sans walk into a bar. The bartender says, "Get out -- we don't serve your type."
                    • A mixed metaphor walks into a bar, seeing the handwriting on the wall but hoping to nip it in the bud.
                    • A comma splice walks into a bar, it has a drink and then leaves.

                    • Falling slowly, softly falling, the chiasmus collapses to the bar floor.

                    • A gerund and an infinitive walk into a bar, drinking to forget.

                      Niiiiice. Interesting thing (okay, to me) about the comma splice: I never used those, thinking the semi-colon was more correct, but I'm learning Chinese and comma splices are how you do it in that language. So now they're creeping into my English, too.

                          Yes!  Although the tea variant sounds a little weird but who knows and I'll still buy and try!

                            Anything worth while?  Not that I plan on waiting in any lines for it but I’m curious.

                                Anything worth while?  Not that I plan on waiting in any lines for it but I’m curious.

                                I live in Michigan but have spent the last couple Thanksgivings in the Sarasota area. It has been easy to pick-up all the variants there. The first year I arrived at the store (Total Wine) 30 minutes before opening and waited in line. The next year I showed up 30 minutes after they opened and still got everything (although they only had a few of the variants left). In the Detroit area, it's almost impossible to get everything no matter what you do.

                                 

                                 

                                Bourbon County Brand Stout
                                The original, aged for a year in a mix of barrels from distilleries that include Buffalo Trace, Heaven Hill, and Wild Turkey.

                                Bourbon County Kentucky Fog Stout
                                This is Goose Island's first "tea-inspired variant." It's a take on London Fog using Earl Grey and Black Tea from Kilogram Tea, as well as clover honey.

                                Bourbon County Special #4 Stout
                                This variant is an oatmeal stout aged in bourbon barrels. The beer gets a hit of Intelligentsia Coffee after the aging has completed, as well as some bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup.

                                Bourbon County Caramella Ale
                                Caramella Ale is a wheatwine aged in Larceny Wheated Bourbon barrels with apple, cinnamon, and caramel flavor. Caramella is Italian for candy, and the name seems appropriate since there's a serious caramel apple vibe to the recipe. "The aroma leans heavily into sweet caramel and cinnamon spice, while the taste comes in to show off the bourbon-soaked Larceny casks and red apple notes, reminiscent of a bold apple brandy," says Goose Island Lab Tech Joey Tidei, who developed Caramella Ale.

                                Proprietor's Bourbon County Stout
                                Goose Island says this year's Proprietor's Stout was "inspired by third-generation Italian American brewer Emily Kosmal's love of spumoni." The beer is blended with pistachios, cacao nibs, vanilla flavors, and candied Amarena cherries. This release gives Kosmal a unique distinction as the first Goose Island brewer to have two Proprietor's recipes selected for release.

                                Birthday Bourbon County Stout
                                They're calling this a "truly unique variation," though it has little to do with cake if you're reading too deep into the "Birthday" part of the title. This stout is the result of a partnership with Old Forester. It was aged in Old Forester Birthday Bourbon barrels, mixing with the sought-after bourbon. Old Forester's tasting notes on the bourbon: "Rich oak spice and black currant coupled with light maple, caramel cake, and white floral notes."

                                Anniversary Bourbon County Stout
                                This last variant was aged two years in Weller 12-Year barrels as a celebration of Goose Island's "10-year tradition of releasing Bourbon County Stout on Black Friday." Expect this one to have strong barrel flavors between the 12-year Weller and sitting for an extra year before bottling.
